Page Protection

New since version 3.3 is the full page protection. It’s not only for pages to be exact, it can also used for posts, products and pretty much every other custom post type you can think of.

Page Protection 1

It blocks the entire content of your page without the page title.

How to use Page Protection

Unlike the shortcode you just need to fill out a bit of details in a metabox which you should see when you edit a page. Due to the fact that some users prefer the new Gutenberg editor and others are using the old WYSIWYG-editor it made screenshots of both:

Classic Editor

Page Protection 3


The settings are pretty equal to the shortcode parameters described here. That’s why we keep it a bit shorter here.

Protection settings

First you need to toggle the “Activate Protection” option to on if you want to protect the entire page with one of the protection options. Then you choose a protection type. You will notice when choosing a protection type the fields below will change depending on the mode you have chosen.

A small example (Passwords compared to Captcha):

Page Protection 4
Page Protection 5

Besides that, you can also restrict the page additionally for a user or user role. When a user with matching criteria visits the page it gets unlocked automatically.

Page Protection 6

The other options are more for the general design and texts and pretty much self-explanatory:

Page Protection 7


When using a page builder chances are good you are required to use the reload option from the Passster options. Passster automatically detects Elementor and WPBakery Pagebuilder and forces the required option to be active. When using another Pagebuilder make sure you activated the reload and cookie settings within the options to prevent any issues.
